It just seems like an elegant solution, you know? I don't mind the audio quality from the analog jacks at all, so if A2DP is equivalent, well, that works...

A2DP with SBC may actually be lower quality than the analog jacks on the iPod.

Oh, if you were planning to use a Bluetooth adapter, it would also be more than likely by connecting by analog. Then you've got two problems.

Hunh. I figured the dock connector adapters would be going digital.

Many are not. Apple makes hardware designers jump through a lot of hoops to get to the digital signal. So most just pull off the analog. Most of the Bluetooth adapters take the analog signal, run it through an ADC, and then encode it with SBC to send through the air. It's then received converted back to PCM, and then passed back through a DAC.

Just for that, I'm going to make you help me troubleshoot why my Chicago office can't communicate reliably with my California office.
